Tyler County Commission had a light agenda leading into the Christmas holiday last week.

When the commission met Dec. 22, Ronnie Parr presented commissioners with a plaque “In God We Trust.”.

In other matters, Rosemary Guida from Northern Panhandle Workforce Investment Board gave an updating report to the Commission, according to County Clerk Teresa Hamilton.. Guida said this fiscal year, which started in July, the board had $54,000 cut in funds, but there have been no layoffs.

Also, Deputy Kelly Weigle of the Assessor’s Office presented the commission with the dates and times of the Board of Review and Equalization Hearing for Tyler County, Hamilton said. Commissioners approved accepting the dates and times, which will be published in the Star News on January 20 & 27.

And, commissioners approved Chief Deputy R. Dean Pratt to represent the law enforcement on the Emergency 911 Advisory Board, Hamilton said.

In other business, levy ballot language was pulled from the Emergency Ambulance Renewal Levy in 2010 because of questions about the Ambulance levy money since Alma was dissolved, Hamilton said. The Auditor’s Office reviewed the ballot and language, as long as the levy money is used to provide ambulance service to the county it can be spent as the commission sees fit.

The Emergency Ambulance Levy expires next year, so it will need to be on the ballot then, Hamilton said.
